Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

ÒThe world is in serious trouble--and everyone knows it. Something ominous is about to happen,Ó says evangelist Tim LaHaye. HeÕs talking about the biblical signs of Òthe end timesÓ that he sees regularly in world events, as debt, crime, and global instability take hold. The author of the LEFT BEHIND series sounds alarms in his writing (with Ed Hindson)--especially in the early chapters. The brisk, urgent tone of his narration sets off bells as well. LaHayeÕs goal is to get listeners thinking about how they can be ready for the Rapture, but the shrillness of the narration puts the emphasis on end-of-the-world fears.

Format: Hardcover
This book is definitely trying to be the "Late Great Planet Earth" by Hal Lindsey for the 21st Century but it doesn't quite get there. The book is definitely a real page turner. It is real easy to read no matter what your background is, church goer or not. Any will get something out of this book. One of the authors, Tim Lahaye is the same guy who wrote the Left behind series. You will definitely see the similar styles of writing.

First the author lays out some of the recent events of the past few years. The speed and frequency of these events have definitely dulled some people to what is going on. Once you read about the events and threats in one setting you will perk up for sure. Nothing he writes about is new and hasn't been mentioned in the news before. I do like how the authors do link the truth about Islam. It isn't a peaceful religion. The only people who believe that is the cocktail circuit at Georgetown. The real Islam power base in the middle east definitely don't believe it nor have they ever believed it. Islam is a religion which expanded under the power of the sword and keeps its power under threat of death if you convert. However the authors try to make the link to end times prophecy from the news events and they don't quite make it.

The theology of the story here in the book is first rate. Every point is backed up by verses from the bible. It is very easy to understand. Theology students and serious readers on the subject might get bored with the book. They do lay out a different time line than most. Their points are not quite the same as Hal Lindsey says but close. They sort of miss how the temple might play a role in the end times. They also expand their scope beyond revelations. They take from the whole bible, not just revelations.

If you have read any of LaHaye's previous commentaries on end time prophecy, you have already read most of this book. He rehashes a little bit of middle east current events and fits it into the Gog - Magog prophecies. You're read it before. If you haven't read any of LaHaye's stuff before you would be better starting with his "Revelation Unvieled" in which he presents his eschatological arguments in a straight forward very readable fashion.

This is an exciting book. I'm reading past history and future history. Tim La Haye
is writing about a subject that has been researched to the fullest. When I read his
books I always feel enlightened on the subject at hand. He always backs up his
findings with a scripture that I can check for myself in the Bible. I like reading his
books, its always worth my time. We may be on the brink of World War III, but this
will lead to something even greater than WWIII, the most anticipated appearance of
our Lord.

Format: Paperback
Drs Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson wrote this book. I received a copy of it from attending a prophecy conference in Cartersville, GA at Tabernacle Baptist Church last year. All who attended received this book for free. The conference was great and so is this book.

Tim LaHaye is a well known author and is one of the authors of the very popular Left Behind series. He has written or co-written over a dozen books on prophecy that is part of the LaHaye Prophecy Library series. He is also the namesake of Liberty University's LaHaye school of Bible Prophecy. Dr. Hindson is the Assistant Chancellor, professor of religion at Liberty and Dean of the Institute of Biblical Studies at Liberty. He is also the president of World Prophetic Ministries and host of The King is Coming Telecast on TBN.

The book starts off describing the world we are living in today with all its turmoil. It says despite all the technological advances in computer technology, medical care; increasing prosperity and a growing number of opportunities for a better quality of life and more longevity, many people have a growing sense of uneasiness about the future. Most people would agree that we are living in one of the most precarious and dangerous times in our history. There are explanations of new weapons that terrorists could use like the internet, EMPS, etc. and how they could attack us to really cause a lot of harm on all our citizens and the targets terrorists would really like to hit. The book even mentions a website that lists every terrorist attack in the world since 9/11.

The book explains the conditions we see know in the world and that the Bible accurately predicts this events and happenings.

More About the Author

Dr. Tim LaHaye (www.timlahaye.com), who conceived the idea of fictionalizing an account of the Rapture and the Tribulation, is a noted author, minister, and nationally recognized speaker on Bible prophecy. He is the founder of both Tim LaHaye Ministries and The PreTrib Research Center. He also recently cofounded the Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy at Liberty University. Presently Dr. LaHaye speaks at many Bible prophecy conferences in the U.S. and Canada, where his current prophecy books are very popular.

Dr. LaHaye holds a doctor of ministry degree from Western Theological Seminary and a doctor of literature degree from Liberty University. For 25 years he pastored one of the nation's outstanding churches in San Diego, which grew to three locations. It was during that time that he founded two accredited Christian high schools, a Christian school system of ten schools, and San Diego Christian College (formerly known as Christian Heritage College).

Dr. LaHaye has written over 50 non-fiction books and co-authored 25 fiction books, many of which have been translated into 34 languages. He has written books on a wide variety of subjects, such as family life, temperaments, and Bible prophecy. His most popular fiction works, the Left Behind series, written with Jerry B. Jenkins, continue to appear on the best-seller lists of the Christian Booksellers Association, "Publishers Weekly," the "Wall Street Journal," "USA Today," and the "New York Times."

Another popular series by LaHaye and Jenkins is The Jesus Chronicles. This four-book fiction series gives readers a rich first century experience as John, Mark, Luke, and Matthew recount thrilling accounts of the life of Jesus. Dr. LaHaye is co-author of another fiction series, Babylon Rising. Each of the four titles in this series have debuted in the top 10 on the New York Times best seller list. These are suspense thrillers with thought-provoking messages.
